told me so

As I munched yet another pizza hotpocket and continued enjoying the best time of my life, deafened by silence, sitting alone in a guy apartment staring mindlessly into a small box, grasping for some small sense of community by posting comments on the blogs of people I will probably never meet, I saw what is probably the cutest thing I have ever seen.

Cute laughing babies that bear your image in matching outfits , a beautiful southern wife and new mother with a heavy accent (I would place it in Tennesee), in a warm comfortable environment, Dad's funny and has a new gadget. Unforgetable family times made of things that would seem mundane and insignificant but for some reason the whole world is watching this video.

Do you see the contrast? Westminster 139 comes to mind. An undue delay of marriage.

Whether you told yourself you wanted to have your roaring 20's, you were going to be an independent woman, or you deluded yourself into thinking that you were spiritually superior to married people and you were going to accomplish all these great things for God and you were going to give yourself the spiritual gift of temporary celibacy, you have to admit, those babies laughing is a lot cooler than what you are doing tonight. Marriage isn't that bad after all.

I didn't want to mess with the mood I had going there but at one point it sounds like a couple lolipop guilds of munchkins laughing simultaneously.

It wasn't for you! You have off broadway plays and cute lil morocan restaurants. Ok well maybe it was a little bit just to make you jealous that backwoods Kentucky has something you don't. haha
